As the Calgary Flames prepare for a game tonight in San Jose, some news came down the pipeline.
Waivers: DEVIN SETOGUCHI

If Setoguchi is not claimed by 10am MT tomorrow, presumably he’ll be sent down to Adirondack of the AHL. However, if he clears, he can be sent down anytime in the next (a) 30 days on NHL roster or (b) 10 NHL games played, whichever comes first.
“Gooch” has 0 points and a minus-7 rating in 12 games this season. He made the team out of camp. For comparison, here’s how the call-up kids have done.
- Josh Jooris: 9 points in 16 games, +1
- Markus Granlund: 9 points in 12 games, +2
- Sven Baertschi: 3 points in 10 games, -4
- Michael Ferland: 1 point in 4 games, even
- Max Reinhart: 0 points in 4 games, -3
- Corban Knight: 0 points in 2 games, even
You can make a pretty compelling argument that any one of these guys have earned NHL minutes with their effort so far more than Setoguchi. Based on the move this morning, Flames management agrees with that assessment.
